Special_Olympics Global Messenger

Mr. Kaman has been serving as a Global Messenger since 2001 and his first speaking duty as a Messenger was addressing ILS students in chapel.  Mr. Kaman is pictured here with his mother (left) and Jordan Feldman, Area 18 Director of Special Olympics, who also spoke.

Special Olympics Global Messenger Matthew Kaman joined Immanuel Lutheran School students in chapel on March 30 to personally thank them for Immanuel’s support of the hospitality tent at Special Olympics. He described how much he enjoys going to the tent each year.

Mr. Kaman has been competing in Special Olympics track and field events for over 25 years. He told students that he can’t imagine what life would be like without Special Olympics and that his participation has improved not only his physical health, but also his self-esteem. He concluded his remarks by telling the children, “Thank you for making this an event that the athletes will remember for the rest of their lives. God bless you.”
